The Libertines were Jews who were former slaves. Correctly, "Freedmen" were Jews who were Roman slaves but were subsequently freed. Some suppose them to have been manumitted Roman slaves, who having embraced Judaism had their synagogue at Jerusalem, or understanding the word as denoting Jews who had been made captives by the romans under Pompeii but were afterwards set free.

Although these Libertines had fixed their home at Rome, they had built at their own expense a synagogue at Jerusalem which they frequented when in that city. The Libertines need to be distinguished from the free-born Jews who had subsequently taken up their residence at Rome.
